    The Georgia Southern baseball team will make its 14th NCAA tournament appearance on Friday when it faces Florida State at 6 p.m., on ESPN3.
    The Eagles, who won five-straight games to win the Southern Conference tournament and an automatic bid, will enter the field of 64 for the first time since 2011, as a No. 4 seed.         Alabama and Kennesaw State round out the regional field.
    GSU has faced Florida State 112 times and trails 29-83 in the all-time series. The Eagles have not faced Alabama since 2002 and trail 14-6 in that all-time series, while GSU owns a 9-8 edge all-time against Kennesaw State — but the Owls won both mid-week meetings this season.
    The Seminoles are the No. 5 national seed. Oregon State (42-12), Florida (40-21), Virginia (44-13), Indiana (42-13), La.-Lafayette (53-7), TCU (42-15) and LSU (44-14-1) round out the rest of the top eight seeds.
    Each of the 16 regionals features four teams, playing a double-elimination format.
    The regionals are scheduled to be conducted from Friday, May 30, to Monday, June 2 (if necessary).
